The Singapore Sling is one of the most important cocktails of 1900. Born as a simple pink cocktail for the ladies, in a very short time it becomes a trendy cocktail. All at once all the British gentlemen of the good Singapore society wanted a sip of it.

The creator of the Singapore Sling is the legendary bartender Ngiam Tong Boon, bartender of the Raffles Hotel in Singapore, whose museum still preserves the book with the original cocktail recipe. Add a trip here to the 99 things to do before you die.

But that’s enough with the story and let’s go the real question: why this drink is so special? Why has it become one of the most famous cocktails of all time?

The answer is simple: the Singapore Sling has a unique flavor, complex, full of aromas and a thousand nuances, but at the same time is fresh and dry, with outstanding drinkability.

And despite having a high alcohol content, while you drink it you will feel nothing but a soft and velvety caress on the palate.

That said let’s go to the original Singapore Sling recipe and be very careful because the ingredients are many and you have to be careful to recreate the delicate balance of sharp, herbaceous and sweet flavors. But don’t worry, Nick, our naked bartender, will guide you step by step in the preparation of this wonderful drink.

Singapore Sling cocktail ingredients and doses

  • 3 cl of gin
  • 1.5 cl of apricot brandy
  • 0.75 of triple sec
  • 0,75 of DOM Benedictine
  • 12 cl of pineapple juice
  • 1.5 of lemon juice
  • 1 cl grenadine
  • 1 drop of Angostura

How to prepare the Singapore Sling cocktail

The preparation itself is nothing difficult, but once again be careful to respect the doses.

Squeeze lemon and strain the juice. Use a juice extractor to make pineapple juice, never buy industrial juices. Also at home, you deserve the best.

Put ice in the shaker and add the juices. Pour the gin, triple sec, apricot brandy, DOM Benedictine and angostura.

Add a touch of color with a dash of grenadine.
